Let's face it: Social media plays an integral in the average high school student's life. While some parents and educators might be prone to view Twitter, Facebook, and the like as distractions to the young people in their lives, an interesting blog post by George Washington University biomedical engineering student William Broman suggests that there's a flip side to that assumption. His article on US News & World Report's STEM Education blog suggests ways in which creative educators might consider leveraging the technology to encourage engagement in STEM subjects. Broman concludes, "Higher education, including my school, and businesses are using Twitter and Facebook to communicate effectively with students or customers and solve problems--it's time for high schools to do the same."
